13/05/14 5 5 5 5 Extremely intelligent and very understanding. Dr. Lessard is by far the only doctor that I have been to who honestly knows an incredible amount of knowledge, and understands when a person has many mental issues how they interact together. He understands how you feel inside, and takes the time to explain it to you. Although he is one of the top doctors with an giant waiting list he still takes the time to make sure your doing ok before you leave. He actually cares, and that's what makes a difference between him and the rest.  Respond

05/11/13 4 4 5 5 I have been treated by Dr. Lessard for the last 6 months. I have had a number of health issues and have had to see many different specialists. He is by FAR the BEST doctor I have met in a very long time. He is a walking encyclopedia of science and he has helped me understand what I have been struggling with for a very long time. He is extremely busy and if you meet you will understand why. Thank you for caring about your patients and giving us a real change to be happy.  Respond

30/04/13 5 3 5 5 I only started going to Dr. Lessard recently, but I am very impressed. He spoke to me like an equal, explained the neurology and pharmacology of my situation in great detail, and cut to the heart of the problem right away. In many ways he has helped me more in two visits than my previous practitioners did in several years. However, you'll have to cut him some slack around accessibility and punctuality. He's on call for psychiatric emergencies in a big hospital, so don't expect your appointments to be in at 12:30 and out at 1:30 on the dot. That doesn't bother me in the least, considering how much he has helped me already.

03/09/12 5 5 5 5 First met Dr Lessard in the emergency room because my doctor had prescribed medication that caused side effects. Dr Lessard explained to me the interaction of these medications and why I felt the way I did. He accepted me as a new patient. Since, I am taking less medication and I am doing much better. He always listens to me despite being in the emergency room for long hours. He also accepted meeting with my family!  Respond

21/08/11 4 5 5 5 Dr Lessard is so well known by patients. Our group of physicians had numerous patients referred to him. It's always unanimous: "This doctor is down to earth, always smiling and a walking library". We as physicians have participated to many of his conferences. He presents up to date science and data in an incredible clinical way. Our patients are grateful; they say he has a unique way of explaining and teaching complex neuropharmacology in a very simple format. Thank you Dr Lessard  Respond

23/03/11 2 4 4 5 I've been a patient of his for the past 2.5 years and the change in my well being is remarkable. Very approachable, down to earth. He genuinely cares and is not the type to push medication. He is patient and even though I've challenged him a few times, he manages to bring me back to reality and is often able to do so in a humorous matter. Because of the hospital setting, you get often get interrupted many times within a session by phone calls or knocks on the door. His secretary is not very quick to call back and never answers the phone even when you mention that it is of an urgent matter.  Respond
